Pretty good

There is a difference. With all the diners in NJ once might assume they are interchangeable but they are not. My meal at the Brookside where I met a friend was pretty good. My hamburger was large and properly cooked if very slightly greasy and gristly. The pickle and coleslaw were also good. I... read more

This diner is a wonderful place for satisfying your appetite. Good food and a lovely and well maintained facility. Reasonably priced, much to choose from, and friendly wait staff.

We have dined here for twenty years and have always enjoyed the food and service. Wraps and burgers are excellent as well as all breakfast items.

The food here is delicious!!!!! Even though they were busy, the service was excellent. I had the French dip and it was the leanest roast beef I have ever had in my life!!! My husband had the pizza burger (huge at 8 oz.) and it was the best he ever had!! Great place for great food at a very reasonable... More

Old looking place, with high prices for diner food and small portions. Paid $16.99 for chicken parm with one 4 oz piece of chicken and less than 3 oz of pasta, total cost to this place $2.99. All his portions are at least 20 to 30% smaller than other places, this place is at least 30% more expensive then his... More

I stopped in yesterday with my daughter and granddaughter on a long trip, looking for that homey diner experience instead of fast food. We weren't disappointed. The food was good -- nothing to write home about, but pretty much what I was expecting, and maybe a little better than that. The toddler enjoyed the plain mac & cheese. My buffalo... More

This was our first time at this diner. We were seated quickly, brought water quickly, and had a waitress take our drink order after a minute of reviewing the menu. She took our food order after bringing our drinks and we had hot cooked to order meals within 15 minutes of placing our order. The restaurant was well staffed, staff... More

Great food, good service, an old fashioned diner. Huge servings and daily specials. Homemade desserts and outstanding coffee. I usually get take-out, same quality and quantity as dine-in. The owner, John, is friendly and very personable. And it's close to home Doesn't get any better than that!

Ate at this diner with a large group after a night out. Typical diner menu...anything you could ask for. Returned the next morning and ate breakfast. Friendly staff and the "regulars" seemed to know the names of the servers.

Brookside Diner's Wednesday lunch special is indeed special. There is a separate menu and there are many bargains. I like the Greek salad with cajun chicken. It comes with a choice of soft drink, soup and dessert - all for $8.99. How can you beat that? Service is pleasant and ambience is typical diner - but with an added flavor!!
